Making your home child-safe.

How to make your home safer for baby

The baby boomlet means a whole new generation gets to worry about ways Junior will find to get injured. To help ease that anxiety, Sunset introduces a new guide, Making your Home Child-Safe (Lane Publishing Co., Menlo Park, Calif., 1988; $6.95).

In 80 pages, the book takes you through house and garden, flagging potential hazards and describing ways to circumvent them. There's a section on how to shop for baby gear, and a family safety guide covers everything from poisons to pets.

The book alerts you to different problems that crop up at different age levels; a child will grow out of some risks but quickly embrace others. Different times of year present their own problems, and special sections address these issues--from pool rules to holiday hazards.

Along with tips on how to protect baby from dangers around the house, there's also advice on how to protect the house from baby.
